We’ve been having quite a time this past week. Many people have submitted questions.  But not too many. In fact, right now, you have better than a 20% chance of winning the H&R Block At Home Premium Software. So, do submit your question before midnight tonight – PACIFIC time. 

Thanks to all who entered and participated. The contest closes tonight at midnight PST.

Thanks to Office Depot and H&R Block  for making this contest possible!

We will select the 5 winners of the H&R Block at Home premium software tomorrow.  They will be announced in Friday’s Ask TaxMama – after we notify the winners privately.

Your prize will be shipped to you on Monday – if you have provided your mailing address. If not, they will be shipped once we know where to ship your prize.

Note: You will be disqualified if you did not provide a valid or correct e-mail address – or if you have unsubscribed from the database. Your prize will go to the next person. (In other words, it is each entrant’s responsibility to ensure you can be located without fuss!)

  • What is my “Tax Home”?
